Hyderabad Travel Guide

Hyderabad is the third largest city of Pakistan, at present and its history goes back to pre-Islamic times, when Ganjo Taka (barren hill), a nearby hilly tract, was used as a place of worship. Hyderabad became the capital of Sind when Indus changed its course from Khudaabad in the time of Kalhora rulers. Hyderabad was previously known as Neroonkot, ‘Fort of Neroon’. The fort was in possession of the Buddhists at the time of the conquest of Sind by Mohammad Bin Qasim in 712 A.D. In the 16th and 17th centuries it continued only as the district headquarters. The tomb of Mian Shah Kalhora, the founder of Hyderabad, Hyderabad in 1889is one of the most important monuments of the city which was constructed in 1772 A.D.

The political boundaries stage the city as a district and the region has seen major political turmoil. From the battles fought against the British occupation to the civilian unrest in the 1980s, the city has lost its glory of past and much of its cultural and architectural heritage lies in tattered ruins.


Hyderabad is a hot and humid city in the south of Pakistan and has been a staging point for literary campaigns particularly oriented towards the Sindhi language and a birthplace of a few influential poets and Sufi dervishes. Rich with culture and tradition, the city is the largest bangle producer in the world and serves as a transit between the rural and the urban Sindh.


Stationed close to important architectural digs like the pre-HarappanAmri at 110 km, the region holds extreme importance to archaeologists the world over. The city is also known for its medical and educational institutions. It is also home to one of the oldest universities in the region, the University of Sindh.
